The Best In You

Photography Mentorships & Workshops By Tara McMullen

"Should I Quit My Day Job?" One-On-One Mentor Session


"Should I Quit My Day Job?" One-On-One Mentor Session


Tumble outta bed
And I stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition
And yawn and stretch
And try to come to life
Jump in the shower
And the blood starts pumpin'
Out on the street
The traffic starts jumpin'
The folks like me on the job from 9 to 5

Oh, Dolly. I feel like she was singing about the struggle that each and every one of us goes through before taking the plunge into entrepreneurship.

You're slogging it out in the 9-5 world. It pays the bills, but leaves you feeling unfulfilled. I get it. I dropped out of my PhD while I was the top candidate in my department to pursue photography. Because I'm a crazy person, and because I couldn't repress my passion for one minute longer.

Sound anything like you? I get it. Let's talk.

Add To Cart

This half-day session includes ::

  • An honest look at your life, your income potential, and a frank discussion about the financial commitment that comes with creative self-employment.
  • Portfolio review of your current work
  • We will create a game plan to help you transition from your full-time work to self-employment. This may not happen overnight, but you will be more successful if you let it happen at a well-planned and thoughtful pace.
  • The low-down on sole-proprietorship, taxes, bookkeeping, insurance, registering your business, and all of that other super scary stuff (it's not actually that scary...I promise).
  • This session allows you to choose your own adventure, too! We can talk about gear, editing, file storage, image sales, pricing, my favourite ice cream flavour (pralines and cream), and whatever else is weighing on your mind as you head into this transition.
